-- Tactical laser weapons technology demonstrates its readiness for deployment
Under the CRADA, the organizations intend to integrate the G-CLAW into PEO Fixed Wing's common launch tube dispenser and complete the required testing to secure flight and weapons safety certifications. After those certifications have been obtained, Textron Defense Systems and USSOCOM will conduct inert and live-fire demonstrations of precision unitary munition delivery from a tactical carrier aircraft such as the MC-130W Dragon Spear. Integration activities will culminate in an end-to-end, live-fire demonstration.
Textron Defense Systems' G-CLAW incorporates multiple, redundant safety features, including self-destruct and self-neutralization mechanisms, to eradicate the threat of UXO. The G-CLAW is designed for integration into tactical munitions dispensers, as well as from unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) platforms.
